The Lions thought jet lag made preparation tough before their underwhelming opening performance against the New Zealand Barbarians, but imagine preparing for a top-flight game of professional rugby without taking on board any calories during daytime hours.
Williams, typically, makes light of it and decided to take on the Lions from the very start, turning them over within five minutes.

Another turnover soon followed before he showed great instincts to score just before the break.
His late break and offload to West then won the game. He was OUSTANDING.
